Disney Day 2: Hollywood Studios

On Monday, we went to Hollywood Studios where we had lunch reservations for the Play 'N Dine character meal at Hollywood and Vine.
While we were waiting to be seated Avery and Charlie found a way to peek inside. They kept yelling, "oooh! I see Oso!" and "There's Handy Manny!".
When were finally seated, Avery and Charlie were greeted by some of their favorite Disney Junior characters.
The lunch was an "American style buffet". 
The food was good, but not awesome. 
Avery and Charlie got lots of mac and cheese and chicken nuggets, so they were happy. 
David and I agreed that while the food wasn't out of this world, the dining experience and atmosphere was. Overall, we definitely felt like we got our money's worth. 

Each character came to the table throughout the meal to spend time interacting with our kids. Every 15 minutes or so, a cast member would come out and sing and dance with the kids. They sang lots of songs from the Disney Junior t.v. shows. 
It was a huge hit with my little guys.
After lunch, we went to the park to check out the Disney Junior show.
Then we let the kids play in the Honey I Shrunk the Kids play area.
Avery loved the rope web so much that she decided to do it on her own. 
Without telling us. 
She just disappeared. 
David and I finally found her at the top of the web. 
It was the most terrifying 1 and a half minutes of my life. 
That's when we decided that maybe it was time for a crash course on stranger danger and what to do when you can't find your mom and dad. Just remembering it makes me a little sick to my stomach. Ugh.

Later, we saw the Beauty and the Beast stage show. 
But by that time, it was hot, hot, hot. And raining. And hot.
 So unbelievably hot.
 So we decided that maybe it was time for an ice cream break.
After ice cream, we thought that a visit with Woody and Buzz would do us good.
While we waited in line, Avery and Charlie posed for the camera.
 Charlie thought the line was way too long.
 But cheered up when he saw his friends Woody and Buzz.
We rode the Toy Story Mania ride and then had dinner at Pizza Planet before heading home for the evening.

Charlie was definitely worn out.
Avery's favorites:
All of it. I just asked her and she said that she loved all of it.

Charlie's favorites:
Toy Story Mania and The Disney Junior show.
